Union Electric Company Key Developments

Ameren Missouri Plans to Shut Down Meramec Coal-Fired Plant Located in Oakville by 2022

Ameren plans to close its 61-year-old coal-fired power plant in south St. Louis County. Ameren Missouri plans to shut down the Meramec coal-fired plant, which is located in Oakville, by 2022. The closing could come sooner, pending changes in rules on greenhouse gas emissions. The Sierra Club previously sued Ameren in an effort to force the company to reduce air pollution at the Meramec plant and two other local facilities.

Ameren Missouri Reports Unaudited Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended Mach 31, 2014

Ameren Missouri reported unaudited earnings results for the first quarter ended Mach 31, 2014. For the quarter earnings were $47 million, compared to first quarter 2013 earnings of $40 million. The increase in earnings reflected much colder winter temperatures, which drove higher electric and natural gas sales volumes, a decrease in interest expense and disciplined cost management. These positive factors were partially offset by higher depreciation expense and a higher effective income tax rate.
